Thukral & Thagra: Match Fixed

Thukral & Thagra
Match Fixed
UCCA, 798 art district, Beijing

Entering the exhibition room is like an overdose of sugar and candy. Pink walls, colorful wallpapers, gold and bling. What first appear to be a Bollywood wonderworld is in fact a story about loss, cheating and loneliness.

Thukral & Tagra tell a story about Indian men being established in the west, returning to India to get married to a local girl. Then they disappear with the money from the wedding, while the wife is left alone. What seems like a glamorous life is actually an empty and sad life.
